While using the umbrella today, I noticed that my "UNflippable, UNflappable, UNleakable" GustBuster had a broken hinge and while fully extended the pole stem is now being supported by only the fabric. Which means the fabric is likely to tear apart. See attached photo for more detail.
I called GustBuster regarding this issue and was told that I needed to send the umbrella and a check for $10 back to GustBuster for the umbrella to be repaired and returned to me. Which means I'll be out $20 to get the umbrella repaired. Unfortunately, I have no confidence in the product or the company and am not willing to spend another penny or a minute of my time towards a refurbished umbrella.
Upon initially receiving the umbrella, I thought it was OK but not worth the $40 I paid for it. Now I am confident the umbrella is poorly constructed and would recommend you purchase from a different manufacturer.
The umbrella was great until it broke. I had so much hope that this would literally be the last umbrella I buy. I just bought another one prior to this event and now I want to return it because of this issue. This umbrella was never in a backpack/suitcase, never compressed between other items or by an item, was always opened and dried before putting away, and it was always hung. I am very disappointed because I could've gotten a similar umbrella that would last longer for much cheaper.
-Works as a great umbrella (sturdy with a strong wind) but does terribly with opening and closing.
-The parts that drive the opening and closing mechanisms are cheap and flimsy. This is my second one I bought and sadly I have only used one about 40 times and the other about 30. The closing mechanism broke and it is a nightmare to close because you can only grab the plastic sliding piece connected to all of the tension rods to collapse the umbrella which is just awkward. Because you have to do it manually you will be close to the umbrella which will “shake” when it goes backwards over the first pin which will spray water on you and then it seems to lock at a point (second pin), right before it is supposed to, but close enough for you to think it’s fully closed. *if you stop here then you will not be able to put it back in the sheath it came with. **the only way to easily collapse it fully is for you put your hand on top of the umbrella and push down. If you try to just “pull” it down to the real closing point the same way you got it down to the second pin you will likely have to dismember your fingers because an adults hand can’t pull the sliding plastic part into the handle. You can risk pinching your fingers on the tension rods though and stick your fingers on top of the plastic slide piece and push down if you would like but it’s at your own risk.
-the handle is just not acceptable. I think they had no more development money and it seems like someone just took a cheap piece of plastic and superglued it to the stem of the umbrella. It is also slippery and the farthest thing from an ergonomic shape to have in your hand.
